Gold/FLASH Cards | Discount Directory | Seattle Affordability Portal | DisclaimerContactServices

Our online Discount Directory provides an opportunity for retail, service, arts, entertainment, tourism, and other organizations in the greater Seattle area to provide special discounts for older people and/or adults with disabilities, building their customer base and, at the same time, building a more age-friendly community. Search on any keyword or zip code to find discounts near you. For a temporary print version of the Discount Directory, click here.

Consumers: Businesses and organizations define "older adults" and "adults with disabilities" in different ways, and some extend discounts only to Gold Card holders (age 60+) or FLASH Card holders (age 18–59 with disabilities). If in doubt, contact them directly to inquire.

Businesses/Organizations: We welcome your participation! Click on the Submit a Discount link here or at upper left. For more information about making your organization more age-friendly, visit our Age Friendly Business website at GoAgeFriendly.org.
